Two weeks ago, scores of Voice viewers thought coach Pharrell Williams made a questionable choice when he shockingly decided to keep Elyjuh René over the highly praised Ricky Manning in the knockout rounds.

But on the second night of the live playoffs on Tuesday, the seeming wisdom of Williams's selection shone through when the California-based singer, 18, delivered an emotional rendition of "Latch" that had all four coaches on their feet.

"I can't believe what I just saw," gushed Adam Levine, whose team performed the previous night alongside Blake Shelton's five remaining artists. "Precisely perfect, soulful ... Pharrell has one of the strongest teams, and you just became the front-runner on one of the strongest teams."

Is the biggest talent to emerge on The Voice this season not a contestant, but newbie coach Pharrell Williams?

It sure looked that way Tuesday night, when the "Happy" singer/songwriter showed off his tender side and tactical strategy while playing a key role in all three battles featured on the second night of the battle rounds.

The show kicked off with Team Pharrell, and pitted Alabama college student Jordy Searcy, 20, against musician-turned-Texas-family-man Taylor Phelan, 25, singing the moving hit "Breakeven (Falling to Pieces)." Williams, along with advisor Alicia Keys, focused on coaxing more emotional performances out of the pair.

Gavin Rossdale and his wife, Gwen Stefani, don't get a lot of downtime. 

"That's why I called my new Bush album Man on the Run," he tells PEOPLE of his band's newest release, out now. "It's such an incredible pace we all live at, and we're all sort of scattered and challenged. There's not enough hours in the day, or days in the week. I have my first afternoon off in three weeks later today, and I'm giddy with excitement! I don't actually know what to do with the time."

Even so, when the rock star's wife, 44, asked if he wanted to join her on The Voice as a mentor for her team this season, he was immediately game to add it into his already packed schedule.
